The only thing special about the place is its old building. There is a long stair to get in the place, as it is on the second floor. There in no other way to get in. The menu is horrible. It is just a copy of a few paper. A pricey place like this, must have a well printed menu. It was unbelievable that they have such a bad menu and very badly formatted. A pizza costs about R$55 and isn't special at all. the service is slow and waiters should receive some training. Amateur restaurant.
I don't recommend this place

We were strolling by Lapa neighborhood and we decide to dinner at this place. We were recommended by a friend of me and it was a perfect choice. I'll recommend to all my friends who visit Rio, for sure. I especially recommend Shitake pizza. Yummy!

I´m in love for pizzas and I have found in Rio a Pizza Restaurant really good we found in São Paulo.

Carioca da Gema very well located among several very good bar in the region of Lapa, bring Very good pizza for reasonable price and waiters very dedicated to serve.

Located in the 1st floor of a old house, there is a charm in this place with very familiar enviroment.

The traditionals pizzas Margherita and Portuguesa are very well represneted here, try without any fear.

The Pizza was not good. Almost no taste, and we both felt horrible after the meal.
Service was slow, we saw our pizza standing at the counter for more than five minutes.
It was cold when we finally got it. All we could achieve was that they put it back into the oven.
The green salad btw is a joke.
Advice: look for something else in the area.

Pizza rodizio on Wednesdays is great. Best pizza we've found in Rio. Good selection of flavors. Well worth the money. Service can be a bit slow though
